See Sun's Java Certification page for details on the different exams, and note that the SCJP exam is the "foundation" required for all the others. That's where to start.

(The "entry level" SCJA exam is not required for the SCJP.)

Hi,

There are different certifications. I think you are going to take the exam for the first time. To my knowledge, SCJP is the first paper. This is for core java.

"krishna",
Welcome to the JavaRanch.

Thanks for changing your display name, but unfortunately it is still not valid according to the valid display names.

Display names must be two words: your first name, a space, then your last name. Fictitious names are not allowed.

Please edit your profile and correct your display name since accounts with invalid display names get deleted, often without warning

thanks,

SCJA is for an "Associate." The exam is higher level overview of Java's capabilites (micro, standard, and enterprise) without going into detail on how everything works. My understanding is that it's intended for people who will work with Java, but not actually be doing the programming -- for example, project managers.

SCJP is for a "Programmer." The exam covers language foundations in detail and is a prerequisite for more advanced exams (like web component development). If you are a programmer, this is generally the place to start.
